Company Information


Thank you for visiting the "MINATO" website.

I have loved nature since I was a child, and it has always been my dream to work in the environment in the future. In my university thesis, I researched zero emissions at a brewery, and to this day, I have handled a wide range of waste, from hazardous waste such as contaminated soil, dioxin-containing waste, and asbestos, to bulky waste generated by cleaning up after the office, sometimes recycling large amounts of PET bottles back into polyester fiber, and dismantling computers to recover rare metals.

Just as there is a word "attachment," it seems that the things that are used with care have a soul. Seeing so many things being thrown away, I began to think that I would like to do something to bring the once-loved "Preloved" things to those who need them again.

We are currently facing a variety of environmental problems such as global warming, extreme weather such as torrential rains, and microplastics, and if we don't move towards a solution now, we will never be able to recover. I would like to continue to contribute to society with the themes of "activities that place as little burden on the natural environment as possible," "efforts to utilize waste," and "balance between the environment, society, and the economy.
